          I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time

          Pros

          PriceMetrix is an amazing organization to work for - it's like working in a close-knit, start-up environment with the backing of a larger organization (McKinsey). You work with a lot of very intelligent people and it forces you to challenge yourself to grow further. Pretty surprised with some of the negative reviews on here!! You absolutely have to be accountable for your work - you may be able to slide by and not do...

          Cons

          Can be a heavy workload at times, especially closer to major releases but that's usually the case in any software organization.

          Pros

          - Great Location in downtown Toronto - really nice new space, collaborative and fresh - free snacks, drinks and fruit - a small piece of the bigger McKinsey family that allows us to maintain a small firm feel with big firm support - great compensation structure at all levels - a commitment to employee growth with training (it was lacking before being acquired) and a review process that is largely based on your peer...

          Cons

          - great collaborative atmosphere, but the collaboration part has to increase - people who are in offices and people outside of them are really two classes - promotion and recognition is really tough

          Advice to Management

          in order to get a collaborative environment, you need to lead with it. u

            Doesn't Recommend

            I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

            Pros

            Nothing is good there if you are support staff.

            Cons

            You will work like a slave. Your pay is minimal with very little chance of ever being promoted. It is extremely hierarchical. You get zero recognition.
